East_Cleveland_Mayor_refuses_to_talk_abo_2241920000_9574989_ver1.0_640_480

East Cleveland has been in fiscal emergency since 2012. The city’s finances are on life support. But, now the East Cleveland firefighters who put their lives on the line daily said they have their own emergency.

“We are at a point where we are tired of it,” said Tom Buth President of East Cleveland Firefighters IAFF Local 500.

According to Buth, money is being taken out of their paychecks, but there is a problem.

“When membership came to me and said ‘what’s going on, I am getting all of these bills for thousands of dollars?’ I said, I will look into it. I come to find out that the city is not paying the premium portions of our health care, but taking it out of our payroll,” said Buth.

Multiple sources confirm that it is not just firefighters affected, but other city workers too.
